ROLE Anakin Skywalker, future Darth Vader

WHAT’S HOT He’s got the angelic, boyish looks to play a superhero. But he’s got a complex, deeply flawed Darth Vader hiding inside him — which is sexy in a different way.

WHAT’S NOT Try as he might (”Life as a House”), Hayden may never be able to branch out beyond Anakin.

WHAT’S NEXT Playing a young Catholic guy fighting a Mob boss in Griffin Dunne’s comedy ”Nailed Right In”
